Why Buy a Reel Mower?
American Lawn Mower reels don’t have engines which means they don’t produce emissions or make noise. Just the clean, quiet cut of the reel mower. The only sound a reel mower will make is a satisfying quiet snip as the mower cuts the grass. Rotary mowers hack at grass blades, tearing vital fluids from them and leaving them open to disease and insect attacks. Reels snip the grass, cutting each blade like a pair of scissors which leave your lawn healthier and greener. Reel mowers are lightweight and easy to maneuver and easy to store. Pushing a reel mower is a healthy solution for you and your lawn.
Reel Mower Benefits:
- No gas, no air pollution
- Low maintenance
- Superior cutting ability
- Easy to operate/store
- Healthier disease free lawn

The included video is one-handed, so that is why I had some issues pushing. With two hands it works great!

Cut: Some reviews mentioned it doesn't cut as well as a gas mower. I think you just have to be ok with all the grass not being the same length and there being places that don't cut perfectly. This took some getting used to, but as my yard has grown and filled in, I've started to prefer it. Come spring, the yard will look like the outfield at a baseball stadium.
Weight: I usually mow with one hand, so I can hold a beer with the other. Occasionally, I'll end up having to hold the toddler and mow. i.e. this is lighter and more nimble than a gas mower.
Looks: You're spouse/family/friends/neighbors will laugh at you. Be prepared. But, as you whisper around the yard and it starts looking like a professional job, the cackling will... ya so they'll still laugh at you. I swear its worth it though.
Noise/Safety: Won't cut sticks, throw rocks, get hot, make noise, etc. Essentially all the things that make walking around your yard behind a gas mower unpleasant, this won't do. I have conversations with my wife and daughter in the yard while I mow. The other day, my daughter fell asleep in the Ergo carrier while I mowed the yard. Try that with a gas mower.
I took it down 1/2 star because I think there are better rotary mowers out there that have wider coverage which probably makes mowing quicker. But, that's really being nitpicky. If you've never used a rotary, this is a great starting point and well worth it.
I'm going to add four photos to this review to show you just how long our grass was/is ... and how much little old me got done in 25 minutes.
It's 90°F outside and I had to come on in. Notice I DID wear a hat! Great way for me to drop 10 lbs (one of the reasons I bought the little thing). Great arm exercise and stomach too ... not to mention the legs with all the walking! Will put sunscreen on later on.
Don't worry, I WILL NOT be cutting all 2.34 acres with this! (We have a SCAG mower that needs a repair hence a quick eighty-buck purchase delivered in two days!) I am REALLY pleased with it straight out of the box. I didn't adjust the cutting blade height ... I just pushed it and away I went! I did have to go over some areas twice -- no surprise -- the grass is L-O-N-G so I did a few overlaps too, just like I would with the power SCAG mower in dense areas.
I like the way you can pull it backwards on its rear rollers (keeping the blades off my concrete patio!) so you can move it to store it. Yes, it's light enough to lift and carry but obviously KEEP your HANDS away from the blades. Nuff said.
This mower was easy to put together, just be sure to pay close attention to the included instructions. I didn't need any tools to assemble mine.
This mower is 14" wide, which isn't much more than one foot wide. If you have a small-medium area to mow, this mower is a great choice! Just keep in mind, that if you have a large lawn, you will have to do more trips across your lawn than you would with a larger gas-powered mower.
I highly recommend that you rake your yard before use. This is a fine mower and it will cut your grass well - but it is not a power mower and it doesn't cut through twigs and branches very well. It will jam up if it catches a twig or branch, which can be annoying if there are lots of twigs or branches in your yard. Unjamming the mower is easy - just rotate the blades backwards gently with your foot. I discovered that this mower won't cut down really tall weeds - it just pushes them over, as it did when I tried to cut a weed down in this video. (I'll just have to dig up or pull out those tall weeds!)
The greatest thing about this mower is that it isn't a gas guzzling, pollution spewing, noise making machine! There's no more gas or oil to purchase, and and all you smell is your freshly cut grass!
